Adobe discontinues (beta) 64-bit Flash support for Linux

With Flash 10.1 release, Adobe discontinues (beta) 64-bit Flash support for Linux. Unusable nspluginwrapper or a 32-bit browser is all what is left.Adobe Flash logo

Sadly this is both endemic of Adobe and Linux. Adobe makes crap that doesn’t work on anything outside of Windows just barely and Linux is left at the behest of the development community as far as drivers and plug-ins go.

HTML5 may not be perfect, but if it starts to fix some of these problems, I’ll take it. If HTML5 can play video well on all platforms, 99% of my Flash needs are satisfied.
